This week the 2022 Queensland Surf festival wrapped up at Coolum Beach on the Sunshine Coast. 52 Queensland champions were crowned across multiple divisions including shortboard, longboard/logger, bodyboard and SUP surfing. It was an exciting week as 220+ of the state’s top surfing talent battled it out vying for a position in the Queensland team.
The Queensland Surf Festival provides the exclusive pathway for surfers to compete at the 2022 Australian Titles which will be in Port Macquarie later this year.
The Open Men and Women’s Queensland Shortboard Champions, Ben Lorentson and Liliana Bowrey also secured themselves a position in the WSL Gold Coast Pro Challenger Series Trials which will be held at Snapper Rocks on Friday 6 May.
Surfing Queensland would like to thank event sponsors The Sunshine Coast Council, The Point Coolum Beach, Queensland Government, QMS Media and Visit Sunshine Coast.
